Kevin Cherry's note on synthesizer arrangement:

Starts out on a synth, but using two guitars:

Guitar 1:

Finger
e  x
A chord diagramBB  x
A chord diagramG MajorG 10
A chord diagramD MajorD 10
A chord diagramA majorA   8
A chord diagramE MajorE  x

Pick quickly A-A-D-D-G-G-D-D-A-A-D-D-G-G-D-D (all sixteenth notes) over and
over
(Technically, this is until the end of the song, when the violin comes in.)


Guitar 2:

Finger:
e  13
A chord diagramBB 13
A chord diagramG MajorG 10
A chord diagramD MajorD  x
A chord diagramA majorA  x
A chord diagramE MajorE  x

Pick quickly G-G-B-B-e (The A chord diagramG MajorG and A chord diagramBB strings are played as sixteenth, the e
is picked as an eighth)
